I want to thank everyone who has emailed me and left comments concerning "our headaches". I guess we are in a league of our own. You all are great and I am sorry that we somehow have been chosen to handle these damn things.
I've had them since I was about 16-17 years old. To count how many different medications I have tried would take all night. Most of the time, while I am waiting to see if the headache gets worse the prime time to take medication is shot. I am grateful that today the pain didn't get worse, just stayed the same all day. If it had we have what is called "code red" the kids help out with making sure there is no light coming into my room and that sounds are down to a minimum. Then the stomach kicks in and I'm out of reality for about 3-5 days.
Anyway, again thank you, and for those of you who are in pain now, know that there are sister knitters out there going through what you are and they care.
